Animal Husbandry Home Study Course. What balance of nutrients do your animals need? How can you provide this? This Online - Distance Learning course will teach you about the components needed in animal diets and the composition of a range of feeds (including pasture, fodder crops, grasses, cereals, seed and other edible plants). You will learn to evaluate feeding, select appropriate feeds (for nutritional content and digestability), and apply this to farming situations. feeding and select appropriate feeds - for digestibility and nutritional content - applicable to real life farming situations.
